We’ve all binged watched home improvement videos online at least once in our lives, right? What about those oh-so-crafty shows about house flippers that are all the rage on TV? For some, those are just simple entertainment. For others? They’re a treasure trove of inspiration for their own homes!
The trouble is that not everyone has the money, means, and time to take on major home improvement projects. Who can afford to turn their homes inside out and upside down? Despite what the media would have you think, not everyone…
The trouble begins when you do want to start a home improvement project! Well, instead of feeling discouraged or trying to plan your finances in order to pay for all the big changes you want to make, why not take on smaller, easier projects? We guarantee that little by little, your home will look like it deserves to be on the cover of magazines!
Here are 23 home improvement ideas that you can do in under an hour without breaking the bank!
1. Add a peel-and-stick backsplash.
Aren’t kitchen renovations the biggest pain in the backside? Just thinking about moving all the furniture and all the dust is enough to make us give up on even dreaming of having an elegant kitchen.
You don’t have to give up, though, thanks to the effortless Peel-and-stick backsplash tiles. They’re affordable and come in a variety of shapes, colors and designs. You’ll be sure to find something that fits your kitchen!
All you have to do is clear a little bit of space, peel off the adhesive backing and adhere the backsplash to your wall! This improvement is indistinguishable from ‘the real deal’ and won’t cost you an arm and a leg!
2. Put up peel-and-stick statement wallpaper.
Now that you’re done adding some pazzaz to your kitchen walls it’s time to reinvigorate your living room or bedroom with, you guessed it, more peel-and-stick wallpaper!
This alternative is far cheaper than a fresh paint job and you don’t even have to redo the whole room. You can just as easily bring new life to a space by adding a splash of color to just one wall. Statement wallpaper isn’t supposed to be overpowering, so try to limit how much you use and make sure it’s impactful without going overboard.
3. Paint an accent wall.
Alternatively, you can go with a solid color instead of a statement peel-and-stick wallpaper. We recognize that those aren’t for everyone and you might find that all those fancy designs add clutter to your space instead.
Painting an accent wall won’t take over your entire afternoon either. All you have to do is shift the furniture away instead of removing everything from that room. You could even make this into a seasonal change, especially if you feel there’s not much else you can do to a particular space in order to liven it up.
Pick and array of favorite colors and switch between them whenever you think it’s time for a change!
